Klomp, Donkey Kong Country: Rescue on Crocodile Isle

Klomps[1] are the main Kremling grunts employed by Kaptain K. Rool and his Kremling Krew during the events of Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. They wear red and white-striped boxers. These soldiers are spread throughout Crocodile Isle, the home island of the Kremling race and are part of the "Kremling Kuthroats" enemy class. Diddy Kong and Dixie Kong defeat many Klomps during their attempt to save the kidnapped Donkey Kong from Kaptain K. Rool. Like many other members of the Kremling Krew during this time, Klomps donned pirate regalia (in this case, sailor pants and a peg leg) like their leader Kaptain K. Rool (the pirate alias of King K. Rool).

Klomps are very weak, as they can be defeated by any attack, including simple jumping, cartwheel and spin attacks. Klomps can only attack by marching into Diddy or Dixie, hurting them on impact. Klomps tend to patrol a small area individually but are often found in groups. They act the same in both Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Land 2. In Donkey Kong Country 2, some Klomps appear underwater, such as in Glimmer's Galleon, and can only be defeated by Enguarde the Swordfish.

Klomps are pirate variants of Kritters from Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Land.[2] Unlike Kritters, Klomps are less hunched and only have a green coloration. In their artwork, Klomps appear to be heavily scarred, though they do not have this trait in-game.

Klomps cannot jump like most of the colored Kritters can; instead, Kaboings possess this ability (Kaboings themselves are Klomps with two peg legs, instead of just one).

Klomps were replaced by Kobbles in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and Donkey Kong Land III. Klomps also appear in Donkey Konga 2.


Klomps appear in the following levels:
